F1 racing, Turkish GP: Calling champion Hamilton’s name (Part 2)

Returning to the racers’ situation, up to now, there are only 4 riders who have ever competed on the Istanbul Park racetrack, namely Vettel, Hamilton, Raikkonen, and Perez.

Except for the Brazilian driver Massa who played under the Ferrari shirt and won 3 times in Istanbul, out of the remaining 4 riders, there were 3 people who had won here, including Raikkonen, Hamilton and Vettel. This comeback, each winner in the past has a very different mentality.

Vettel was the last winner in Istanbul. This return time, along with the last races in Ferrari shirt, maybe the German driver of the 4-time world champions can make his own mark to respond to the expectations of fans in a season where Ferrari lost a lot and was in a mess with its SF1000’s weaknesses.

Pirelli gives the team a combo tire C1-C2-C3 in Turkish GP. Turkey will return to F1 races after a 7-year hiatus. Will Hamilton be crowned champion, or will teammate Bottas make the race last? Will Vettel and Ferrari get back the feeling of stepping on the podium. Will Verstappen return after the failure at Imola?

There is too much anticipation for spectators in Istanbul Park. The track has been coated with a new plastic layer will also be a challenge for racing teams, and after all, the competition between the racers in the middle of the rankings is still an attraction not to be missed.

Hamilton will extend the record, or the opportunity will be for other racers on a new but old track. All will get the answer in the official weekend on the Imola race track in Italy with the name Emilia Romagna 2020.

F1 racing, Eifel GP (Germany): Lewis Hamilton, the record conqueror (Part 2)

Without the best speed, Ferrari 11th lap called Leclerc for the first tire change stop, after stopping pits with Medium tires, Leclerc returned to the 19th class race, right above Albon.

At the same time, Vettel lost control and slipped off the curb at turn 1, then immediately had a pit stop.

Shortly thereafter, a lock-on brake at turn 1 caused Bottas to lose his lead to Hamilton. It seems that the Soft tires do not have enough grip, so the Finnish driver stopped pits to switch to Medium round 13.

Round 14, a collision situation between Russel and Raikkonen caused Williams’ racer to give up afterwards. The incident caused the virtual safety car (VSC) signal to appear, the riders took advantage of one time to stop changing tires. Both Hamilton and Verstappen were pit-stop round 17. They returned to the track still ahead of Bottas.

All trouble has not stopped, Kvyat and Albon collide leading to Alpha Tauri’s wind wing broken at the start / finish line, causing the yellow flag to be raised. It was then that Bottas told team-radio that his car was losing energy, making him unable to maintain his rank on the track, and the Finnish racer had to stop the game in the 20th round. 2nd race must give up.

Round 21, the track supervisor issued a 10-second penalty for Raikkonen, was the cause of Williams’s Russel to give up.

In the 24-25 consecutive rounds, in turn, Renault’s Ocon, due to a transmission error, and Albon had the problem to give up. Previously, the Thai driver of Red Bull was fined 5 seconds for causing a collision with Kvyat, but due to stopping the race that penalty will not be valid for this racer. Up to this point 4 riders had to stop the game.

Round 31, both Perez and Sainz had their first pit stops. At this point, for sure the strategy for these two racers will be the only one pit-stop, they return to the track in 6-7. Soon after Perez overtook Norris, the racer apparently having a problem with the power system in his car.
